Movie Review: 2012 (2009)

Before going to watch 2012 I was concerned about watching another terrible movie about the end of the world, but I was pleased and enjoyed at some parts of the movie, and that was enough for me actually. I was really hoping that the whole story is not even close to be related to aliens, and it was pure scientific facts with mythological and religious believes.

Now about the action scenes (the first part was amazing), but after they use the airplane the quality of the scenes turns to be low-budget somehow. Using comedy part during the action scenes reminds me of “The Mummy Movies”, but the difference here that it is the end of the world and no one returns after his death. The movie was somehow realistic in the government part, until the shitty speech about humanity and how the countries’ leaders are convinced about it.

The movie have some similarities of Prophet Noah story about the Ark, they built 9 arks and people and animals are getting into the huge arks to survive. At the end the new top of the earth will be in South Africa, and no Arabian peninsula in the new map, like that we are erased from the world, although they mentioned Islam when they showed footage about people are praying around the world. I guess this image is better than the terrorist stereotype.

I would give it 7 out of 10

    Way too much use of CGI… not a bad film overall though.
